GATOSTAR: A Fault Tolerant Load Sharing Facility for Parallel Applications

  title={GATOSTAR: A Fault Tolerant Load Sharing Facility for Parallel Applications},
  author={Bertil Folliot and Pierre Sens},
This paper presents how and why to unify load sharing and fault tolerance facilities. A realization of a fault tolerant load sharing facility, GATOSTAR, is presented and discussed. It is based on the integration of two applications developed on top of Unix: G ATOS and STAR. GATOS is a load sharing manager which automatically distributes parallel applications among heterogeneous hosts according to multicriteria allocation algorithms. STAR is a software fault tolerance manager which automatically… CONTINUE READING
